Meet our Director

Meet Childcare Academy Director Ashley Hendriksen

Ashley Hendriksen

Ashley graduated from Fanshawe College with a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and started her career after moving to Calgary in 2011 from a small town in Southern Ontario. Ashley began her career by working with all age groups from infants to school age and was presented the opportunity to be an Assistant Director shortly after. After a few months of being an Assistant, Ashley was promoted to a Director and since then has managed centres with capacities of up to 136 children! Ashley is truly passionate about building strong relationships with families and their children. Outside of her career she enjoys painting, sewing, camping, snowboarding and anything that involves the mountains and outdoors. She also enjoys spending time with friends, and visiting her family as often as she can when in Ontario. Ashley’s main goal as a Director is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the child and to ensure that parents can carry on with their day knowing without a doubt that their child is in good hands with a strong and supportive team of educated and qualified teachers. Ashley is thrilled to be a part of the Willowbrae team and looks forward to meeting you and learning about your child.
